The festival features folk and rock music, outdoor opera and a Children's Book Fayre. The setting of Abbey House - the home of the Festival and the home of Lord Bruce - is spectacular. Unreserved open air seating is provided for the audience, while the artists enjoy a full covered stage setting and one of the most up-to-date sound systems money can buy.
For the opera, gates open at 2.00pm. to allow the audience to bring their picnics and enjoy the views over the Forth from the South side of Abbey House.
